Newcastle United Transfer News: Newcastle United have reportedly shown interest in acquiring Denzel Dumfries from Sport Witness-reported club Gazzetta dello Sport. The 27-year-old fullback is wanted by Eddie Howe to provide depth and variety to his team’s roster.
This summer, Inter Milan plans to auction off some of its prized possessions. It has been stated that the Italian side needs to raise €100 million to straighten up their finances. Recent rumours say they are still not interested in trading away Lautaro Martinez to make room for other players to go.
Inter Milan is reportedly looking to receive a hefty return for fullback Denzel Dumfries. A number of Premier League teams have shown interest in signing the Dutchman. But until now, nobody has shown any real intent.
The 27-year-old fullback has allegedly attracted attention from Chelsea, Tottenham, and Manchester United. Newcastle United is now trying to get the upper hand in the race. Eddie Howe is looking to bring in a reliable right back to give the team more depth and variety.
Kieran Trippier has been a mainstay for the Magpies all year long. Newcastle United will most certainly compete in the Champions League next season, so the club has to be well-rounded. Howe has had the desire to sign a new right back since at least January.
Ivan Fresneda, now of Real Valladolid, has drawn interest from a number of teams. However, Howe may look for a safer bet in the near future. This is why Dumfries is reportedly being pursued, although much will depend on the demands of Inter Milan.

In January, media outlets cited prices above €50 million. According to Gazzetta, though, Inter may be willing to pay up to €30 million to get the fullback’s services. For a global right of reply, that makes sense.
It’s possible that Dumfries may want to play in England and propose a trade. He could think about moving to Newcastle United if they qualify for the Champions League. However, he may receive interest from other clubs as well, giving him a wide range of choices.
At this time, Newcastle hopes to snag the 27-year-old fullback and bring him to St. James’ Park. The Magpies, who value veteran leadership, may have struck gold with his acquisition.
